ICANN revolving door: invisible whiteboard lady jumps to Afilias

In yet another shocking example of the unregulated “revolving door” between ICANN and powerful companies in the domain name industry, a blurry lady using an invisible whiteboard appears to be working for ICANN and Afilias at the same time.

Proof can be found in these screenshots, taken today from afilias.info and newgtlds.icann.org.

The photographs appear to have been digitally altered to disguise the mystery double-agent’s appearance, but it’s clearly the same woman.

    Ah, the joys of using stock photography. I’m just happy she hasn’t been seen working for someone shady. (Yet.)

    Its called people-sharing.

    While we may be more familiar with “job-sharing”, where more than one person combine to do the work of one, there are some areas of expertise that are so scarce that some companies need to resort to shared use of one person to fill multiple jobs at different companies.
